Lecture on the First Two Modern Constitutions: The US one of 1787 and Polish one on 1791 (CLE credits available)date: 2019-10-27

2019 marks 100 years of Polish American diplomatic relations. To honor that occasion, Jagiellonian Law Society, in conjuncton with the Philadelphia Chapter of the Kosciuszko Foundations, would like to invite you to a free lecture (and a CLE program) dealing with Two First Written Modern Constitutions, namely the American Constitution of 1787 (the first in the world) and the Polish Constitution of 1791 (the first in Europe).


Both constitutions were quite revolutionary at the time of their drafting, both stemmed from long-standing local legal traditions while also being quite interconnected due to many personal friendships between the drafters of both documents. The lecture will examine these ties and the significance of these two documents.


The lecture will take place on October 27th, 2019, at the Museum of the American Revolution (MAR) located at 101 South Third Street, Center City, Philadelphia, at 5:15pm.

The program will be followed by a reception -  which is free but for the cash bar.

The event is an accredited Pennsylvania CLE program. The lecture is free. The cost of the one (1) hour CLE program is only $45.00.


To register for the CLE program, please email Frank Chmielewski at: chmielewski@theinstitutes.org with a copy to thejagiellonianlawsociety@gmail.com


The presenters:  Elizabeth M. Zechenter, J.D., Ph.D. and Marian Kornilowicz, Esq.
